Fakes are everywhere on eBay and everybody is happy to buy them for low price because geniune stamps are usually very expensive.

Re: eBay Sellers - China Stamp Society Findings

Again these examples shows how necessary it is to let Chinese Liberated stamps always examine by experts! All Liberated stamps from the eBay cheater "fb77889" in New York, United States are forgeries. Just some examples: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1947-China-Stamps-Unused/122919817324 https://www.ebay...
